The inaugural Fundraising Team Meeting will be held at 3:30 PM until 4:30 PM, Tuesday September 16.  We`ll be discussing the fundraising year plan in general, brainstorming new fundraising events (and untapped resources), and possibly even welcoming some new Directors!  We don`t have a definite room yet, so meet at the EWB Office (Engineering 1C02) and we`ll go from there.  See you then!

GlobeInterested in changing the world?

Check out EWB - we're looking for people like you!

Come to our happenin' Intro Meeting: This Thursday (Sept 11) at 5:30 in Arts 241.

Engineers Without Borders is a bunch of university students and people across the country who want to take a chunk out of global poverty - it’s not just for engineers!  

We think that how Canadians live can have a huge impact on people in developing countries, and that if we change that up for the better, we really can change the world.

If you’re interested in international development, poverty reduction, and/or cookies, check out our intro meeting and get involved in the cool stuff we’re doing this year.  We’d love to have you on the team! 

Check out "What you can do" for more on how you can get involved!

Part of the JF program is to go and live in a village for an extended period of time and do what we do best... learn.  I spent the the last week in the village of Zakoli staying with the family of Alhassan Alhassan.  He is a successful seed grower and one of the biggest farmers in the Yendi district, with about 70 or 80 acres of land and his very own tractor.  His brother, Swali, and his two sons, Muhammed and Abukari, do most of the work, and he hires Konkombas* from down the road to supplement his family workforce. 

Wrapping up. - August 3rd

To go along with my earlier blog post on how much things cost in Malawi I had someone request to know what wages are like. So here are some wages I have found, sorry there isn't more but I don't feel comfortable asking a lot of people their wages. They are in Malawian Kwacha and on a monthly basis's, net and gross vary.

My awesome weekend!
